In the new episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, a comedy classic, and a blockbuster hit!

Monty Python’s Life Of Brian was days away from its cast and crew flying off for shooting when the rug was pulled from beneath it. And when it did finally get made, its problems were far from over.

For The Perfect Storm meanwhile, Warner Bros wanted Mel Gibson and wasn’t sure about Mark Wahlberg – plus Steven Spielberg gave the idea of directing the movie very little shrift!

Stories of both are told in this episode.
